CNIL updates its PIA tool

French data protection authority CNIl has updated its PIA software to make the privacy impact assessment more practical and to foster collaboration between stakeholders.

The new features cover mainly the creation of the PIA report and on the tool’s workflow:

  • it is now possible to filter the information to be shown in the report;
  • the PIA’s visual elements (risk overview, risk mapping, action plan overview) are now visible on the report page and available for download;
  • the action plan can be downloaded in csv format in order to easily follow up on its implementation and/or to include it in existing internal project management processes;
  • several improvements were made to the workflow and contextual information was enhanced, in order to clarify the PIA steps.
